Friendships: 8 Tips For Handling The Emotions

COMMUNITY, FAMILY

Traveling the world full-time with your family is all fine and dandy, until someone starts crying. And, I am not talking about the kids.

Can You Ruin Childhood by Traveling?

CULTURE, EDUCATION, FAMILY, TRAVEL

I was once asked if I thought it was possible to ruin childhood by traveling. Of course, my gut reaction was to give a smart-ass response and toss the question back in the questioner’s court by saying, “Do you think you are ruining your kids’ childhood by staying in one spot?” But of course I didn’t because I don’t believe a childhood is messed […]

9 Ways Travel Changed Us

FAMILY, TRAVEL

Bonjour friends. Today, I am reflecting and thinking about how we thought travel changed us, as we embarked on our WorldTowning life three years ago. As I now realize, our thoughts were incredibly shallow and naive. At the time, we had no idea how much we would change and in what areas. I have learned […]

5 Reasons Why We Travel

FAMILY, TRAVEL

Sitting around and thinking about why we travel is not something we do often. Usually it just comes to us in moments of clarity, and it still makes us go “ah-ha!” In one particular moment, we realized Avalon and Largo are growing up faster than we had ever anticipated.

Family Bonding On The Road: Benefits Of Spending Time Together

FAMILY

Bonjour friends!  I am not going to pretend that our travel road is always paved or that we are sipping margaritas by the sea. But what this lifestyle has provided us with is a life that we never thought was possible. We are able to intensely immerse ourselves into cultures different from our own, work […]

Mini-Me

FAMILY

Bonjour friends. You know what two words I really dislike… mini-me. Do you have a strong disdain for the words…mini-me? Why? Or, do you love hearing them? Why? Yesterday we dropped Avalon off at the airport in Paris. This is her first international, solo adventure without her brother and us. She has been flying without Will and […]
